Mostly Absent Mostly This Week

Hello Darlings!

Fabiola is going to be mostly absent, mostly, this week. Fabiola is off to a part of Fabiola world with questionable connections and limited time for talking to you. Fabiola will return in a week or less.

As you watch the flooding in the Midwest, have you noticed that there are no farmers running around with stolen plasma TVs or holding stolen liquor over their heads. There's no looting or yelling 'Where's Bush', 'Where's FEMA,
Where's my check', or Why isn't the Gov't out here saving me and my farm' -- Shocking contrast isn't it !!!

Not that Fabiola talks about such things ... But ...

Rural Mid-Westerners are used to weather and the elements conspiring against them. Not a one of those river bottom residents chose an easy life, so hard times requiring hard work come as no surprise. That and moving all the cows, pigs, Bibles and guns to high ground takes a lot of time.

As to the contrast, Fabiola doesn't know so therefore can't speak to the actions or motivations of others facing similar situations. Perhaps there was a cow, pig, Bible and shotgun shortage just before the flood in the place you are referring to.

Fabiola doesn't know.
